It's very special. On of the first fragrances with Lolita Lempicka that used licorice as a main note. If Lolita is sweet with the violets, L'Elephant is spicy. It's strong and longlasting but not as heavy as other orientals as it contains not as much amber or vanilla. Mr Kenzo Takada collects lucky elephants, he often used them in his designs for good luck ( only elephants with their trunk up bring luck). Kenzo Jungle L'Elephant was a bestseller here in Europe (especially in France) during it's 3 first years.
The very expensive Bond n°9 Chinatown is a shameless copy of L'Elephant imho.
I also liked Kenzo Jungle Le Tigre (now discountinued) which was a mix of cinnamon, fruit and woody notes.
